Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Shehu Umar,Gusau

The Nige­rian Se­cu­rity and Civil De­fence Corps (NSCDC) in Zam­fara State has dis­missed one Mur­tala Sadiq Muham­mad, over theft.

Mur­tala was ar­rested by the po­lice last week af­ter a shop owner ac­cused him of steal­ing his mo­bile phone recharge cards.

Com­man­dant of the corps, Mr Bashir Lawan, told news­men in Gusau yes­ter­day that the dis­missal was as a re­sult of gross mis­con­duct.

“We sum­moned him to an­swer a query and he did. He ad­mit­ted steal­ing recharge cards from a trader. Based on his con­fes­sion, the com­man­dant gen­eral or­dered for his im­me­di­ate dis­missal from the ser­vice to serve as de­ter­rent to oth­ers,” he said. Lawan added that the corps would not en­ter­tain any act of in­dis­ci­pline be­cause it was founded to pro­tect lives, property and in­tegrity of cit­i­zens and not to sub­ject them to any kind of in­tim­i­da­tion.
